    Poach for three minutes, rinse under cold water, add mayo, finely chopped onion and celery and make sanggies...

    Sorry for the derail, but talk of shooting always makes me hungry. :)

    As long as you keep your underwear out of your smoothie, and vice versa.

    Movement when shooting, adrenalized shooting, shooting from cover all of these should be part of your regular firearms training. If you are only going to the range and shooting at a stationary target from a stand still position then your training is probably not enough.

    If anyone is in Vegas I can take you to a private range during the week and perform all of the above!

    PS
    Unfortunately I do not have the ocean like Buka above for afterwards but we can certainly have drinks and swim in the pool! ;)

    One of the main places where I take shooting classes people come from all over the country, and if you ask me its worth it.

    They teach a modified Weaver stance although you're not required to use it.

    Ok, I prefer more of an isosceles type stance.

    You are using a Weaver or Modified Weaver.

    There is some good training to be had at Front Site. It can be expensive but good training none the less.

    So do I. Some people do use the isosceles stance there.

    And costs $9,900 at the lowest or as much as $18,000 if you make monthly credit card payments.

    Peace favor your sword,

    You revive this topic every couple of years or something? :)

    Accuracy vs Speed

    My answer remains the same:

    If you can place 3 rounds touching in 30 seconds... You need to speed up. If you hit a limb with one out of 3 shoots in 1 second...you need to slow down.

    I know I know...we all heard the old saw that "smooth is fast". Yes.

    However that doesn't mean what most people think it means. I can be smooth AND SLOW. You need to shoot as fast as you " smoothly " can.

    Professional shooters use shot timers for a reason. You need to balance speed and accuracy with a smooth presentation/gun handling.

    Generally, I dislike fixedness in both long swords and hands. Fixedness means a dead hand. Pliability is a living hand. You must bear this in mind. -Musashi
